Product Description

About the Author

Odin Zeus McGaffer was born of a virgin on December 25th over 2,000 years ago. Much of his life remains a mystery, but crackpot theologians believe that he was a virgin carpenter with communist tendencies. McGaffer was murdered by his loving father, rose from the dead, and came back to Earth to consume large quantities of beer and fried cheese sticks. Although there is no solid evidence that supports the claims made in this biography, it cannot be disproven. Therefore you should believe this biography, in it's entirety, without good reason or justification.

The Best book ive read on this subject for ages, i still cant belive i was a christain for five months duh lol, it wasnt till i actully read the bible i couldnt belive what i was reading. so i went looking for more books on the subject and on the internet i got The God Delusion which was good and i saw this book so got it. Its brill its funny and very well written makes alot of sence cos after i read the bible i was very angry that people are so gullible to belive such stuff. The god in the bible sounds really evil, killing, murder, rape, its all in the bible and gods doing most of it himself. but anyway this book is sooo good you should read it if youre not sure about religon, buy this book you wont regret it unless youre deeply religious and been brainwashed then you wont believe it anyway and you might get offended lol.

Imagine that "The God Delusion" had been written not by an Oxford professor, but by some angry bloke down the pub. That should give you a pretty good idea what to expect from this book. It lacks the intellectual rigour of Dawkins, indeed there are severe logical flaws in some of the arguments used, but nonetheless it's an entertaining read.

The book doesn't start well. The first 3 chapters are little more than a rant against religion, particularly Christianity, repeatedly stating the obvious in such a way that those for whom the obvious needs to be stated will never get past the first chapter.

Then it gets funny, starting with McGaffer's hilarious summary of the Creation myth at the beginning of chapter 4. It's still a rant, but with a sense of humour, constantly poking fun at Christians.

Some of the spelling and grammatical errors are horrendous. As the book is published by the author (presumably no publishing house would touch it), McGaffer probably lacked the services of a good editor.

The book is written for the US market, where I understand that it is common for atheists to feel isolated. If you're an atheist trapped in a religious community then I can see that this book might make you feel less alone (although you certainly wouldn't want to get caught with it in a violently religious community). For those of us in more enlightened communities (I'm in the secular UK, most of my friends are atheists, few are deeply religious and none could be described as fundamentalist), "Does God Get Diarrhea (sic)" doesn't have quite the same importance, but it's still a damn good laugh.

This is the book I would have written if someone asked me to do a book like Richard Dawkins God Delusion. The approach is far more direct, funny and offensive all rolled into one.

It is an easy read and one that will have you laughing out loud at times.

Not often in stock in the UK, but well worth grabbing when it is.

If you are looking for a book with scientific facts and references, this is not your book. Like a commenter before me said, this books looks like it was written as a rant. However, it is still fun to read (if you dont mind the swearing). I keep it in my car and read it while I wait for my collegues to arrive.

5.0 out of 5 stars Genius 14 Feb. 2010
By T. Sparrow - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This book is filled with so much common sense that it is ridiculous. Not only is this book a fun and easy read but it speaks so simply as to make Christians just seem dumb. Being a former "born again Christian" I look back and wonder how I ever believed that hocus pocus. Thank you McGaffer for putting such truths into print.

4.0 out of 5 stars Fun toilet humor 7 Dec. 2010
By Carl W Privett - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I purchased this book knowing it would be full of toilet humor and it proved to be the case. A very funny trip through many of the absurdities of the bible. His spin was new, his commentary unabashed, and his style tenacious. I almost felt sad for the bible as it is so easy to pick on and his treatment almost rose to the level of kicking someone when they are down. But no need to be sad, the bible was written by bronze age goat herders so there really is no expectation of it to be perfect or even generally accurate. We have learned much since then. Read the book and have some fun.

5.0 out of 5 stars Christianity gets a kick in the nards. 29 Jan. 2010
By John S. Johnson - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Addendum:
Okay all you nay sayers, I have finally read the book from cover to cover, which was no small feat given that the book is not sold in the country where I live, and I still uphold my original five star review.

This book is not for everyone, but you know who you are. It would be quite accurate to call this book an angry atheist rant. If you are someone who is constantly upset and frustrated by the religious nutts that you find all around you, this book will strike a harmonious chord. If you want to pull your hair out every time you encounter an injustice caused by stupid religious people, you will find a kindred spirit in Odin Zeus McGaffer. Finally finding someone who understands your atheistic frustrations will bring the peace that passeth understanding.

However, if you have any sympathy towards Christianity at all, stay away from this book - it will only make you angry. Ridicule and bathroom humor are used freely in reference to Christianity - and that's why I love this book so much.

Cheers

Original review:
Apparently, the reviewer before me, Phillip V. Moody, is one of the faithful and finds nothing funny about ridiculing Christianity. However, as an ex-fundamentalist (funnymentalist) Christian and a "rabid atheist," who enjoys nothing more than taking the piss out of Christians, I found that the author of this book hit home in style and content.

The things I found amusing were rants such as this: concerning debating Christians, he says, "How can you expect to have a serious debate when the opposing party sincerely believes that a 2000-year-old zombie Christ is answering millions of prayers each day in a parallel universe?" Yeah!!! He's speaking my language!

I found his narrative of an encounter with an attractive Jehovah's witness hilarious,"...this lady was definitely 8 out of 10 without any beer. So, I let her ramble a few uninspiring verses to me while I imagined myself banging the Christ out of her in the back seat of my car." Sweet! SWEET!!!

In addition to the rib-tickling ridicule, McGaffer does make theological arguments. When speaking of a verse (Eph. 2:3, "God knew before creation that man would rebel and require reconciliation.") quoted on a religious tract, he argues, "If God knew in advance that his creations would rebel against him, then why would he continue creation in the first place?"

Also, the anti-endorsement by a Pentecostal preacher on the back of the book made me want to buy it even more, "... an intolerant, insensitive mockery of God. McGaffer should rot in Hell." If it makes the fundies angry, it's got to be good.

Mind you, I only read the first chapter and a half, the selection that is shown in the "Search inside this book" function on this page, but it was enough to make me want to own this book. You should read it too.

From what I read, this book seems like a real knee-slapper. I'm buying it.

4.0 out of 5 stars Crude, over the top, and very funny 21 Dec. 2010
By L. H. - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I have read several books including C.J. Wehrlman's "God Hates You, Hate Him Back" and Bart Ehrman's "Misquoting Jesus" and Jesus Interrupted" - all excellent books. McGaffer, takes the argument against religion to a whole new level. Is it crude? Yes! Is it offensive? Yes. Is it funny? Yes Does it do a good job of blowing a huge hole in religion? Pretty darn good. I have not finished the book yet, but I have to say I have enjoyed it a lot and have laughed very hard from the first chapter. But, McGaffer also makes some sobering statements that are important when looking at the history of religion and the violence it has inspired (and continues to inspire). I just wish more fundamentalists would open their eyes and read authors like Wehrlman, Ehrman, and even McGaffer.

2.0 out of 5 stars Right, yet Wrong 12 Aug. 2012
By jennaw92 - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I am an atheist and I am always on the look out for more compelling theories and evidences that God does not exist. With that being said, I found most of the author's arguments compelling and well thought out.

However, and this is one huge however, the author lost all of his credibilty and respect by looking down and insulting people that do believe in God. The author was so incredibly offensive and disrespectful towards religious people that any success he could have gained, he lost. I am a big fan of offensive humor (Family Guy, Sarah Silverman, etc) but this book is down-right inconsiderate and intolerant of others. The author says that "religion is bad" yet all he does is continue to tease and mock people and spread more hatred. I am almost embarassed to call myself an atheist being as he is one too and I don't want to be lumped into the same category as him.

The arguments itself were astonishingly good and if they were presented in a better way I honestly think this could have been the next the God Delusion or God is Not Great. However, the book was filled with childish pictures, cutesy-LOL-speak, and hurtful insults. I can't believe that a grown man wrote this.

I am going to give the book two stars for the arguments. I would have given him a three for the arguments but some of them are not orginal and have been used before by other atheist authors. If you want a funny book about atheist go with the more famous authors. You will not be sorry.
